The Queensland government is honouring workers killed on the job with 2 new memorials, one of which is an online honour roll and the other a permanent memorial to be constructed in the Roma Street Forum.
The memorials will pay homage to people lost at work and prove the Palaszczuk Government’s commitment to safe workplaces.
The memorials were recently announced, on Workers’ Memorial Day, the day we remember not only the workers who lost their lives on the job but the family and friends of these people. We also remember the importance of workplace safety.
The new permanent memorial is aimed at also increasing public recognition of the tragic circumstances in which Queenslanders have lost their lives to their work whether it be due to a workplace injury, illness or disease.
The memorial is scheduled for completion in 2019.
An honour roll will also be created online which include the names of workers who have died due to work-related incident or illness in the state of Queensland. It will also include tributes and personal stories by the workers’ family and friends. See more at http://content.safetyculture.com.au/
